West HamWest Ham 2 – 1 Derby County Derby

Paul Jewell is still to register a win as Derby boss as his relegated side went down by 2 goals to 1 at West Ham United.

A weak Dean Leacock challenge allowed Hammers striker Bobby Zamora to nod home on 25 minutes but Derby, showing rare creative intent, hit back.

Tyrone Mears powered a fine equaliser over Robert Green on 65 minutes and the Rams were looking likely winners.

But substitute Carlton Cole cushioned in a close-range volley ten minutes later to leave the visitors desolate and give the Hammers, who gave starts to youngsters Freddie Sears and James Tomkins, all 3 points.
